I was out buying pool parts today, and the pool store is next to a Petco. So I went in to buy soom crickets. Got to talking with the manager about T's. She was very nice, but didn't know much about spiders. Anyway, We were talking about the two she had in stock, a Zebra and Rosie. The same as it ever was.

I asked if she would let me get a good look at them. I looked under the rose cage and there is a huge eggsack. The cage is a total mess. dead prey, dirty water w/ sponge. Stinks let you know what.

Asked her how much for the whole works? Med Petpal, log hide, Nice water dish, Spider and sac. $12.00. Its mine now.

Should I try to claen up this shi* hole the poor moms living in? Or what?

Please Help!!! :confused:

Mr T - now YOU are da man. $12.00 !!!! I wish I could give you some advice but having never had a female with a sack I can't say. I had several wild caughts that I was sure were gravid and they all shed :mad: Good luck!

PS This will require the "I got a fantastic deal pixie dance" :D
which brings up a point - how did you contro yourself in the store? I mean no gleeful giggling when she told you the price?

Looks like the same thing happening here with my G. rosea. I raised the humidity a little and I guess I will start collecting pill viles. I wonder how long it will take before they pop out. My guess about a month and a half.
